I’ve just been interviewed by Adriaan Pienaar on his hugely popular site adii.co.za as part of his long-running ‘Mini Interviews’ series.

I was honoured to be approached by Adii, as past interviewees include such stars as Larissa Meek ( interview), Dan Rubin ( interview), Veerle Pieters ( interview), Matt Mullenweg ( interview), Roger Johansson ( interview), Jonathan Snook ( interview)… the list goes on.

So thanks very much again for the interview, Adii! Check it out if you want to hear me rant on about avoiding “the Web 2.0 look”, my favourite designers, and what it was like to work as a Web Designer in the music industry.
